Fire Glass

last day of summer 2016 016

It may be hidden in the deepest

thoughts of prayer and surrender.

It may await us in the deepest levels of knowing who we are,

Or rest just above naval mines.

Maybe in the gutters of Skid Row,

Straddling opposite directions facing the rust belt.

Where we once saw factory workers, sweatshops, and church-goers,

drinking against the Hudson River.

Proving love is still the answer,

withstanding that we don’t agree.

Love is time

Love is the wound

Love is fire

Love is old

Love is deeper than any depth searching over and over

Love is dream

Love is prayer

Love is master

Love is slave

Love is….

    “Proving love is still the answer,

    withstanding that we don’t agree.

    Love is time

    Love is the wound

    Love is fire

    So beautifully done.
